Lineage: Clostridium saccharolyticum; Clostridium; Lachnospiraceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: Country: Canada; Environment: Sludge; Isolation: Sewage sludge in Canada; Temp: Mesophile; Temp: 37C. This organism is able to metablolize a wide range of sugars. This organism was first isolated from a mixed cellulolytic culture started from sewage sludge and relies on the cellulolytic microorganism to provide sugars for growth.

Subject: NC_006177:835459 Symbiobacterium thermophilum IAM 14863, complete genome

Lineage: Symbiobacterium thermophilum; Symbiobacterium; Shewanellaceae; Clostridiales; Firmicutes; Bacteria

General Information: This symbiotic and thermophilic bacterium was discovered by screening for thermostable tryptanophases in Japanese compost. Cultured growth of this organism requires the presence of another bacterial species, such as a Bacillus or Escherichia coli, which provides diffusable metabolites required for its growth. Pure cultures can be obtained by growing Symbiobacterium thermophilum in a bioreactor, separated from its symbiotic counterpart by a dialysis membrane. Because of its symbiotic nature, it cannot be cultured with conventional methods. Despite a negative reaction for gram stain, this species is placed with the gram-positive bacteria based on 16s phylogenetic analysis.
